    Hi

    New to chickens and so far we have the one worst stains of Mareks, coccidia, too many horney roosters with frost bite and its freezing here. But please tell me green earlobes on a chicken is normal. Not sure if I could handle another sickness![​IMG]

    The earlobe is not green, it is simply a sort of white with a little blue in it. Not abnormal at all. In fact, your bird in this picture appears healthy. So sorry about all your flock's problems. Hope chicken keeping is a little easier for you in the future! Feel free to post if you ever need any help :)

    A Cream Legbar should have a white ear lobe, but another color would not indicate any sickness.
